I've worked for some of the biggest companies in the world. IBM, BT Plc, AIG, Boots The Chemists. I've worked in the public sector (for the Learning and Skills Council) and I've delivered training accredited by the ILM, the largest awarding body in Leadership and Management in Europe.
With over 25 years' HR and training experience, there isn't much I haven't seen at work. I'd love to tell you some stories but...confidentiality and all that!
Over those 25 years, I've developed and delivered every HR policy imaginable, managed major restructuring and change programmes, introduced absence management schemes that reduced absence rates by over 40%, harmonised terms and conditions of employment for over 400 employees, trained hundreds of managers in dozens of organisations how to manage teams and get the best out of people, mediated for teams and individuals who just couldn't work their issues through by themselves, handled more grievances, disciplinary cases and redundancies than I care to remember, and have never lost an employment tribunal case.
I know the difference great HR and people management can make, and I want to share that with you, so that you can be the kind of boss that great employees never want to leave. It's not hard, it doesn't take a long time or a lot of effort. Just a clearly focused and structured approach, commitment and consistency.
Management matters. More than you can ever believe. A good manager sees how to get the best out of each and every employee. They make everyone's life easier and better, so all their team can focus on doing their job, and making more money for the business.
As The Accidental Manager's Best Friend, I'll be your HR and people management expert, in your corner, helping you manage better, feel more confident and most importantly, feel happier about managing your team.
So if you’re ready to increase your productivity, reduce the hassle of team management, and build a more profitable business, give me a call.
